“Having been a financial advisor for the last 30 years, I shocked a lot of people when I entered the world of software”
Some may say David has many hats, spending the last 30 years as a Financial Advisor and over five years as the chairman of a children’s charity, as well as being the founder of one of the largest business networks in the North East that has been growing for over 10 years.
There isn’t much David doesn’t know about getting the most out of a community, and with all his knowledge and experience, the Six Circles platform was born!
One hat David has hung up is his adventurer hat – you may recognise his distinctive ‘Geordie’ tones from the ITV 4 documentary Marathon des Sables – The World’s Toughest Race.

Community Business Development Specialist
Lewis is a Sunderland born lad who strangely enjoys the heartache of watching his team religiously play every weekend.
Having spent half of his adolescent life traveling the world with his Father (Indonesia, Dubai and Qatar to name a few of the places he lived), Lewis got to experience first-hand a wide variety of cultures and communities that he now carries with him for life.
These life experiences coupled with his experience in building long lasting relationships, provides Lewis with a wealth of knowledge as he holds the tools to help you identify and understand your community’s needs, helping you to heighten engagement!
Lewis’ last adventure was to travel Australia for a year prior to joining us (although he only lasted 3 weeks – he must have really wanted to start his new role here at Six Circles!)
